Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus video. If not..check out my last blog post or click on the link above..
I was blown away by the popularity of the video. I first watched it early Tuesday morning when it only had 309 views..now it has over 10 million..
Honestly I thought it would be a video that The Christian Left would pass around..but not be popular in the "mainstream Christian Culture"
I was wrong..
I have seen this video on a large majority of my friends Facebook, who would describe themselves as "Christian"
This is very encouraging!
Although we might differ on our theology..we all see what the "Church" has become..and we are sick of it!
Religious hypocrisy has ruled the church for too long!..and I am hoping and praying that my generation will put an end to this discussing misrepresentation of Christianity that are prevalent today.
It seems that the "conservatives" "milldle-of-the-road" and "liberals" are all on the same page when it comes to the outrage felt by those who feel like our faith has been hijacked by politicians..business men and women..those just wanting to get an "edge-up" by professing a faith..by nature of their actions they do not follow.
My generation is sick of those who degrade others via their "Christian faith"..making others feel "less than"
And we are sick of the most loving, gracious, merciful and just man to ever live to be misrepresented and used to support social, economic and personal beliefs that are contradictory to the man we call Christ.
We have a long way to go to reconcile Christ's Church..but recognizing that the religious BS that has represented "American Christianity" for the past couple decades must be ended.
My generation..the 20-somethings will be the generation that reverses the religious hypocrisy that seems to dominate our culture.
We will stop using our religion to justify our wars, our tax breaks on the rich..we will stop supporting legislation that takes away from the poor and assists only those with power and money.
My generation will go to the Gospels and live out a life of unconditional love..concern for the poor and sick around the world, We will reclaim Christianity from the selfish individuals who have hijacked our faith for personal gain.
We will show our world what it is like to truly follow Christ..
Peace & Love
